JAKE#3 AD 08-24-13


ADOPTED 08-24-13 – Jake is a yellow lab mix that was found alone at a local bank when he was 6 weeks old. He has been in the loving care of his southern foster ever since. Jake is 8-9 weeks old on June 6th, weighted 12 pounds and is in good health. He has had both round of puppy shots, tested negative for Parvo, will be spayed on 6/11/13 and will need his 3rd puppy shots when he arrives up North.

As all puppies his age, Jake has lots of energy and is a very active loving boy. He loves to chase, fetch and tug of war and he loves other dogs. He will need lots of exercise during his younger years and would do well if he has another dog. He loves children which make him a very stable and well rounded dog. His foster mom’s friend brings her 9 month old to the house and Jake just licks and kisses his ears.

Jake has been exposed to cats, barked once to say hello and then went on about his business. This is a good sign and because of his young age, he would do well with cat with the right adopter that would take their time.

Jake is extremely lovable and gets along wonderfully well with other dog.

Jake is adjusting well and his mom is working on his house training and tells us he is good in the car, crate and she is working on the leash with him. He is unsure about loud noises such as lawn mowers and leaf blowers but in most cases, it is because a dog doesn’t know what they are. In time, he will learn to understand that they are not something that will hurt him.

The perfect home for Jake is with a family that will give him the time to learn about all the new things in his life and be committed to exercising him every day. Of course love and kisses on the nose is most important and should be an everyday occurrence.

Jake is ready to go to a home so if you have lots of TLC and room in your heart for a little guy, please fill out an application. Jake has shown us that he has a big heart and will love you FOREVER.

Sponsored Dogs – They Need Your Help!



RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
